We care for your Child
- Glass number – About 20-30% of the normal school going children have some kind of eye problems like Refractive Error (glass numbers).
- Amblyopia or Lazy Eye – Amblyopia also called as lazy eye disorder of sight which results in decreased vision in an child’s eye that otherwise appears normal, or out of proportion to associated structural problems of the eye.
- Squint – It is a condition in which the two eyes point in different directions. One eye may turn either in, or out while the other eye aims straight ahead. Due to this condition, both eyes do not always aim simultaneously at the same object. This results in a partial or total loss of stereo vision and binocular depth perception. The eye turns may be visible at all times or may come and go. In some cases, the eye misalignments are not obvious to the untrained observer.
We recommend that preschool children receive a complete eye examination at the age of five years or earlier if any problem is noticed.
